Is it possible to hold certain slides longer than others. For example 5000 ms for slide one, 2500 ms for slide 2, then back to 5000 ms?
Hey Steve, you can’t set the transition per slide unfortunately. However, you can delay the first one only but once it runs through all slides, it will always use the same transition speed set on the config tab. 🙂
